Curriculum & Syllabus Design Online--DEMO SITE  

  • Students work through weekly units with links to hands-on examples or models in a very interactive, project-based learning mode. Canvas is used as a learning management system.
  • No regularly scheduled meeting times but students need to log into the course site daily to interact with their peers and the instructor. E-mail and text/voice/web conference chats are also used.

Welcome to my online course Curriculum & Syllabus Design. It is a graduate course in the Master's degree program of Teaching English as a Second Language at Saint Michael's College. In this course you will learn how to plan a curriculum and syllabus for their own ESL/EFL teaching environment. Participants develop a curriculum portfolio project in several peer-reviewed segments. They examine the purposes of curriculum and syllabus; survey existing programs; evaluate various syllabus types; analyze the needs of stakeholders, including the learners' needs; determine language proficiency according to language standards; establish a mission, teaching philosophy, and methodology that drive curricular goals; set objectives, requirements, assessments for a syllabus; develop a multi-day unit plan, and set up a testing and evaluation plan for their curriculum.

The Getting Started/Orientation link will tell you how the course is set up.

The Syllabus and Semester Schedule links also give insight into how the course is delivered and what is expected.

Please contact me if you are interested.
